another view on the way to Lembar.
Returning back to main island, we again lost the earlier boat *LOL*, meant we might got late for our flight. It was rushing way home. But even we knew we should be hurry, still.. we couldn’t resist to stop on some spots to take pictures. Hahahaha.. the view was tempting! Aah.. I’d wrote too much… endingnya langsung deeh… after the ferry, we did really really hurry driving from Padang Bay to Denpasar. I could say that it was impossible to catch the flight to Jakarta. We were still on half way while the boarding time reached. Only miracle could save us!!

In Ngurah Rai airport we ran even we knew the plane had should been flying since 15 minutes ago. But IT DID! The last luck was happened! The flight was delayed. As we checked in, the officer told us that we’re lucky… and yes, we were lucky during the trip. Always! For it’s LOMBOK, our journey of fortune.
